Partridge in a Palm Tree

Who needs snow when you've got sand between your toes? Let's talk about celebrating Christmas in our Florida coastal paradise, where the palm trees are lit, and Santa might just be catching a wave.


Santa's Surf Shack:

You won't find Santa in a sleigh around here; he's upgraded to a surfboard. No chimney? No problem. He's sliding in on the waves, spreading cheer with a splash. Keep an eye out, Santa has been spotted at both Jacksonville Beach and St. Augustine Beach. I've even heard reports that he hunts for shark teeth at Main Beach on Amelia Island.

Flip-Flops Over Snow Boots:

While the rest of the world is bundling up like marshmallows, we're rocking flip-flops and Santa hats. Who needs snow boots when you've got the beach as your runway?


Jingle Shells, Jingle Shells:

Our Christmas carol isn't about dashing through the snow. It's the symphony of waves, seagulls, and the occasional ukulele strumming down by the shore. Jingle shells, anyone?


Palm Trees > Christmas Trees:

Why settle for a regular old Christmas tree when you can have a palm tree adorned with twinkling lights? From St. Augustine's Night of Lights, to Deck the Chairs at Jacksonville Beach to Amelia Island's Dickens Illuminated Procession, you will see palm trees dressed in their fanciest lights.  And the partridge … he is still a good fit (or a seagull will do if you are short on partridges).

Our limited edition "And a Partridge in a Palm Tree" tee sums it up perfectly. Because a partridge in a palm tree beats twelve drummers drumming any day.


So here's to a Christmas that's more sunscreen than snow and more seashells than sleigh bells. Unwrap the gifts, enjoy the sun-kissed vibes, and let the sound of the ocean be your soundtrack.

Cheers and Merry Christmas!
